Theory Seminar

This semester the theory seminar will be every Thursday from 12:00-1:30pm. We have reserved Forsyth 150, but Room 655 in ISEC will sometimes be available. The Theory Seminar will occur every week. If we do not have an invited speaker, we will have short presentations from students or faculty. Write to Jonathan Ullman with suggestions for speakers!
